Exclamation Automatic “subscription”

Just discovered a £15 “subscription” charge on my credit card, from a company that I have never heard of.

It would seem that there are these “companies” using GDPR “acceptance” tick boxes to get your agreement to free trials, that then automatically change to monthly payments...

Fortunately my card company knows about them, and has put a block on any further debits from them.

Also found an email in my “spam” folder from 30 days ago, welcoming me to the “scheme”. It looked quite cleverly constructed, so as to get filtered into a spam folder...

As always a wake up call, to keep an eye out for these things.
